The San Marcos region in Guatemala is surrounded by two of its highest peaks, the Tajumulco and Tamaca volcanoes. That being said, the cherry plantations in this area is situated at about 1,200-1,800m above sea level, on volcanically ideal and fertile soil.
About 20 smallholder producers contribute to the La Leona washing mill which is known for their commitment to improving their understanding of how their plantation process affects the coffee. They have worked hard over the years to strengthen their infrastructure and quality of their coffee. The La Leona farm is certified by the SCA as speciality grade.
The cherry plants are grown in the shade of Ingas, Plantain and Oranges, which are subsequently fully washed and fermented with water for 38-40 hours. The cherries are then full sun-dried on patios and raised beds for the next 10-18 days until the moisture content is between 10-12%.
This coffee has a good complexity of flavours and makes a super clean cuppa. With fruitiness of peach & honey sweetness, delicate floral mid tone with hints of hazelnut finish. A great pick for morning cuppa!
